    The Ballad of John Houser
    [to tune of “O,Susanna”]
    I come from Albama, my Glock upon my knee. I’m bound for Louisiana
    to cause some mis-ery,
    I drank all night the day I left, the county it was dry
    I slipped around the background check; It don’t apply to me,

    I’m going to leave some folks bereft,
    Mr, LaPierre don’t you cry.

    O, Mr. LaPierre,don’t you cry for me,
    I’ve got a dozen rounds for others, but the last shot’s saved for me.
    O, Mr. LaPierre, don’t you cry for me,
    I’ve got a dozen rounds for others, but the last shot’s saved for me.

    Well let’s hope that the sentencing portion is a little more obvious. I typically disagree with death penalties because they let the perpetrator take the easy way out, and generally it seems more appropriate that they should suffer a lingering agony for their callousness. However, in this particular case, I don’t feel that we don’t need this animal consuming our precious oxygen any long than absolutely necessary. Let it be swift!

    I say we will hear a death penalty sentence by Monday afternoon at the latest….Any Takers?…lol Our justice system does work sometimes. Let’s hope it keeps up the good work getting these crazies off the street and arranging the meetings with their makers.
